Last year I hosted a ‘The French Life’ cookalong, and today I am sharing the booklet I made for the event!


I am so excited to share some of my favorite French recipes with you and hope you will like them as much as we (all those who participated last year included!) do. The booklet features seven sweet and savory French recipes: the richly filled soupe au pistou from Provence, the savory onion pie known as pissaladière (I’ve included the history of the dish), my creamy flan parisien (a childhood favorite of many French), a hachis parmentier (wonderful comfort food!), marinated olives (a great apéro treat), an easy peach clafoutis and last but certainly not least, my decadent gâteau
au chocolat.
 Note that although the cookalong is over, you are more than welcome to try the recipes and tell me all about your results. I invite you to post your creations on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with a tag to @thefrenchlife_paola along with the hashtags #paolawestbeekrecipes and #paolawestbeek. Bon appétit!

PS: Many thanks to my husband Hans for the brilliant design and photography!
